Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

The modest sized Grade II* church of the Assumption is at least 12th century in origin.

About this church

The north wall contains two unusual splayed round windows set within the thick flint walls, and a round-headed doorway below, which reveal the church's ancient origins. The church occupies a peaceful setting in the village with a well-kept churchyard bordered by a flint wall.

Great Walshingham is much smaller than its neighbour Little Walshingham, which gets all the attention because of the shrine and other buildings associated with Our Lady of Walshingham.

St Mary

Although Great Snoring is actually smaller than Little Snoring, its church is bigger and less rustic, reminding us quietly that it was once grander.
